We are starting to use ShopBy on a site and I noticed that if you use a dropdown select box in the admin, there doesn't seem to be a way to not select a value. If you don't select one, the first value is saved by default. Is this correct? Is there a way around this?
Thanks

You can try the following fix.

1- Open file \Website\Areas\Admin\Views\Product\EditProductTemplates.cshtml
2- Search for
Code:
@Html.DropDownListFor(m => Model.ProductTemplates[a].ProductTemplatesFields[i].DropDownSelectedChoice, Model.ProductTemplates[a].ProductTemplatesFields[i].InputChoicesSelectList, new { @class = "form-control" })

3- Replace with
Code:
@Html.DropDownListFor(m => Model.ProductTemplates[a].ProductTemplatesFields[i].DropDownSelectedChoice, Model.ProductTemplates[a].ProductTemplatesFields[i].InputChoicesSelectList, string.Empty, new { @class = "form-control" })


4- Open file \Website\Areas\Admin\Controllers\ProductController.cs
5- Search for
Code:

case CommerceBuilder.Products.InputType.DropDownListBox:
case CommerceBuilder.Products.InputType.ListBox:
   return inputModel.DropDownSelectedChoice

6- Replace with
Code:

case CommerceBuilder.Products.InputType.DropDownListBox:
case CommerceBuilder.Products.InputType.ListBox:
    return inputModel.DropDownSelectedChoice != null ? inputModel.DropDownSelectedChoice : string.Empty;



I have shared a quick fix for you to go on. Please try and test these changes locally before applying on a live site.
